Question

The divisibility tests depend on the number being expressed in base ten. The tests are properties of the numeration system rather than of the numbers. Find examples with numbers in base five to show that, say, the (base-ten) divisibility test for 2 does not work in base five. You will want to find a number for which 2 is (or is not) a factor but whose base-five representation does (or does not) satisfy the divisibility test for 2 that you know for base ten.
